When Fiat needed a new facility for testing their cars, they decided to build a world-class facility in 1975. The Nardo Technical Center’s main feature is a 7.8-mile circle track that’s 4 lanes wide. It is easily seen from space, and it contains a road course, skidpad, and a quarter-mile inside, along with facilities for engineers to improve their designs. When the Porsche Engineering team at Weissach realized the Nurburgring had not changed in 70 years, they purchased the Nardo complex in 2012. In a press release this morning, we’ve learned that Porsche has repaved the Nardo Ring to be faster & safer.
It took seven months and almost $400,000 to remove the old asphalt, install better guardrails, and lay down the fresh blacktop. It is our opinion that the perfect car to break-in the new surface needs to be sleek, AWD, and German. We choose the Audi R8 for several reasons. Audi is a corporate cousin to Porsche, and I can attest to the incredible performance of the R8 V10 Spyder.
It is also worth noting that the Audi R8 and the Lamborghini Huracan are identical underneath, so the R8 should be welcomed by Italian enthusiasts. Our dealers have amazing Summer incentives on these stunning Spyders, so click the link below to find an R8 for you.
